    So I got my Galaxy S7 Edge today. Yes, it's the real deal. I don't know what my local carrier has done (mistake or special deal) but I received an email yesterday that my parcel was shipped. And today it was ready for pickup from our parcel point. I live in Finland and we dont really get the devices here first ever, so this is somewhat really really special case here.

    So I did a little unboxing video :

    Unboxing


    4k video sample


    Fingerprint sensor vs Galaxy S6


    SlowMo video (240fps)

    Sorry for the little low quality, my camera was acting up for some reason.

    I am also happy to answer all questions you have. Still haven't had a much time with the new beast.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I'm guessing that being in Finland, you probably have the stock Samsung, unbranded, Global model, G935F, with Nordic Countries firmware on Product code NEE?

    Glad you were able to get this so early. Thanks for sharing. When you pinch the home screen to get to the home screen settings (Wallpapers, Themes, Screen Grid, etc.), is there a 5x5 option for the screen grid size? I've gotten used to that on the Note 5 and figured the screen would be large enough to accomdate it on the S7 Edge.

    What is that last box you showed? The one after the fast charger.

    How much space is taken up by the System and how much space is available to the user?

    Lucky you. In the picture of the video before it plays you have the Gear VR next to the phone box. Did you get that in the same package? Hows the battery life or too soon to know?

    Yeah gear VR came free with the phone. Can't say anything about batterylife yet. Haven't used the device so much yet

    5x5 is there (i think even Galaxy S6 has it with 6.0)

    So, around 25GB user storage available on the 32GB, stock, unbranded Galaxy S7 Edge, G935F. That's great news. Thanks!

    Colors on the S7 look a bit more vibrant and (surprisingly) I can see more detail on the little side scrolling wheel on the S7 as well.

    Congrats! I'm jealous! I hope they ship here early too. I'd like to have mine by the end of next week, but I doubt I will.

    Can you confirm that the Global model that you have is on the octa core, Exynos, CPU or the Qualcomm, quad core? Thanks.

    Very nice. Thanks for the video. It's getting harder and harder to not push that pre-order button, especially if they're shipping so early.

    Haven't noticed any stutter or lag in settings or with chrome.

    Need to test with a heavy website when I find one
